We recently visited Red Fish on our last night on Hilton Head. The food was fabulous and the service was excellent. I like the fact that they have a retail wine store in the middle of the restaurant. The selection of wines is outstanding and the prices are very reasonable. If you want an outstanding seafood dinner while on HH,... More

I often utilize early-bird dining because the portions are smaller, but the quality and service are normally the same. I went here based on a friend's recommendation. They brought my entrée before I had eaten half of my salad; they didn't ask me how I wanted my salmon cooked (my fault?), so it was more rare than I care for.... More

While visiting Hilton Head I always make it a priority to visit Red Fish. The atmosphere is outstanding and the food is as well. One of the best wine lists on the island and the specials are always fresh and usually seafood. A must for a laid back enjoyable evening.
